This is your chance to wow your aunt. Hopefully this holiday gift guide gives you a few different beauty-related gift ideas ranging from a neutral-colored set of hydrating Laura Mercier Mini-Lipsticks ($40) to a more lavish Marc Jacobs home fragrance ($65). Whatever you choose, make this holiday extra special for Auntie and let her know that you care enough to give the very best. Wait a minute, I'm starting to sound like Hallmark!
I absolutely love living on the West Coast, not only because of the great weather and wonderful people, but because all of my family and childhood friends live here, too. I've definitely toyed with the idea of moving to New York City or Los Angeles, just to try it out and experience a new place, but I could never replant my roots. I'd miss having my family close by and when I eventually get married and have kids, I want my parents to be able to see their grandchildren as often as possible (and help out with babysitting, of course).
So what about you? Do you think it's important to live close to your family, or do you need a little distance to make the heart grow fonder?
